"Wild Horses" as written by Rhonda Kye Fleming and Verlon K. Thompson....
In the bitter cold of winter
I watched him as ran.
Driven by a freedom
Most people never understand.

Now, they've built a fence around him.
But, there's still fire in his eyes.
Don't they know when the cold wind blows
it's just a matter of time?
You can try.

[Chorus:]
But, you can't hold back
You can't hold back
You can't hold back
wild horses.

Now, I've built my world around you.
But, this is not where you belong.
You're too much like him.
You can never be fenced in, for long.
I might hold on.

[Chorus:]

No, you can't back
everybody knows)
You can't hold back)
you gotta let him go)
You can't hold back wild horses.
